New Years Eve in Israel has become bigger and bigger in recent years, and whilst not officially celebrated and there are now hundreds of New Years Eve parties across Israel, as well as many other special events, which cater to all musical cultural, and social tastes.
New Years Eve in Israel is not a national holiday because the country celebrates the Jewish new year, Rosh Hashana which falls in September-October time. The spread of Western culture into israel has brought with it the celebration of new Years so depending on where you are in the country depends on how much is going on. This spread has not been warmly received by everyone, which accounts for why, in Jerusalem, for instance, there is little celebration, but in another place there are some great events.
In recent years, New Years or Sylvester has become incredibly big in Tel Aviv, and is a big night for the city`s restaurants and nightclubs. Many restarurants will become booked up and special parties will take place to bring in the next year. As with anything, there is a huge range of parties catering for different groups and musical tastes.
